Do You Have a Chart Comparing Active RFID (433 MHz) and BLE?
When would we use one versus the other?
We do not have a comparison chart for 433 MHz vs Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons. I would say there are three main differences between the two:
1. Read Range
There is some difference in the locationing capabilities of the two technologies. Active 433 MHz systems triangulate on the tag and tell you it's location to within about 3 meters (9.8 feet). Bluetooth beacons generally communicate with a receiver and tell you the beacon is in a general location. However, there are ways to get more precise coordinates of a beacon, if that is required.
